i think that doing this conclusion based solely on matlab performance
is wrong. first you should check all other alternatives for doing
math. matlab may be used for scalar operations not because it's fast
but because it has good UI. lua/luajit doesn't have such
UI, so you should compare in different category - all
programming languages. if you will find that lj2 outperform other
languages on the speed/cpnvenience ratio, you can make some

Best regards,
